Welcome to Book Bargains & Previews!

Spring is just around the corner...or so they tell me!  While we had a rather mild winter in WNY, February was a KILLER and March doesn't seem to be thawing any either.  I woke up today to temperatures in the single digits!  Brrr.  Good day to read a book!


We had some interest in last week's Preview, "Character Keys to a Bright Future" so I moved it over to the side bar in case you didn't purchase it last week, but would like to now. 

Happy Reading!



The Hallelujah Lass
By Wendy Lawton
The fifth book in the Daughters of the Faith Series, The Hallelujah Lass tells the story of Eliza Shirley, a 16-year-old girl who traveled from England to pioneer the work of the Salvation Army in the United States. The Daughters of the Faith Series gives teens fascinating character-building stories of real girls from history who did extraordinary things for God.

This is a wonderful story about a young Victorian girl who was brought up with all the amenities to become a "proper young lady".  But Eliza, and God, had other ideas.  This was an excellent read.  Even though it is marketed to teen girls, I thoroughly enjoyed it and highly recommend it.

Description: Do you feel like you’re headed down a road that shouldn't be traveled? You’re not alone. Sometimes it’s too easy to find the wrong path. Sometimes you just feel lost. But God is waiting to help you turn your life around; He wants to show you the way.

This powerful collection of stories from real-life teens offers encouragement and support as you overcome poor relationships with your parents, physical or sexual abuse, drug addiction, or painful consequences. With God, all things are possible. Are you ready for a U-turn?

Author Information: Allison Bottke is the creative force behind the God Allows U-Turns series and ministry, author of God Allows U-Turns for Women and coauthor of I Can't Do It All, a women's self-help book. Her debut novel, A Stitch in Time, will be released in June 2006. In addition to her writing, Allison is in demand as a speaker. A conservative Christian who spent her first 35 years as a nonbeliever, her personal U-Turn story has been seen on The 700 Club, heard on Decision Today radio, and broadcasted in many other television, radio, and news media. Allison and her husband make their home in southern Minnesota.

Patti's Two-Cents

This is a great book to share with your teens.  I have a nephew that loves these sort of books; real stories from real people; real life.  I plan on buying him a copy to add to his collection.

These stories were touching, offering encouragement, support, and hope for teens.

Besides, it is from Bethany House...a publisher you can trust!
